Had so much fun with this cuentito. People say the craziest things. Keep sending me and telling me your name stories. My goal is to publish a Stairwell Teatro Episode each Thursday, but this past Thursday I was focused on getting my show ready, so this is coming to you a wee bit later than usual.
Gracias, San Antonio
After two days of some rough rehearsals, where I kept messing up important lines, we produced a show that I am proud of. Thanks to the tech team Dion and Catherine and everyone at St. Mary's who made this performance possible. We had a full house and an appreciative audience. It is especially wonderful for me to perform before bilingual Tejano audiences, since a good part of my story is about growing up in South Texas and explores the history of the Chicano community.
I've met so many amazing community leaders in the world of arts, politics, and civil rights while in San Antonio, thanks to all of you for your Tejas-sized hospitality. I've also had the opportunity to catch up with extended family, many of whom I've not seen in decades. I look forward to returning. Super happy to tape a Latin@ Stories podcast at Texas A&M University, San Antonio. I'll link that when available. Hasta la proxima.
In October I'm participating in several corporate and non-profit Employee Resource Group (ERG) roundtable conversations as part of Hispanic Heritage Month activities. Don't need to wait for Hispanic Heritage Month, I give speeches and make presentations all year round.
My next performance will be at Arizona State University (ASU) on December 10th. Please help spread the word if you know people in the Phoenix area. Tickets and more info here.
